Topic - Carnesecca Arena

Carnesecca Arena (formerly Alumni Hall) is a 5,602-seat multi-purpose arena in Queens County, New York, USA. It was built in 1961 and renamed in honor of Hall of Fame Coach Lou Carnesecca on November 23, 2004. It is the exclusive home to the St. John's University Red Storm women's basketball team, and also hosts the men's team, mainly for games that are not expected to draw a crowd sufficient to fill Madison Square Garden. In practice, the men play virtually all their Big East home games at MSG and their non-conference home games here. The building hosted first round games of the NCAA men's basketball tournament from 1970 to 1974. As such, it is the last place in New York City that the tournament was held, since MSG is the home of the NIT finals and the Big East Conference Championship. - Source: Wikipedia
